After the concept has been developed and finalized, our team starts shaping the application. Diaspark follows single-code based approach on a modular design. This reduces the complexities involved in scaling down the version as per the target devices. We leverage the adaptive development framework and components to create the reference code that is portable with widest number of mobile handsets across basic, featured and smartphones. Our developers optimize the application on runtime memory requirements.
Design for mobile applications requires meticulous approach as handsets have limited processing capabilities for data usage. Design is optimized for faster downloads and response times of the application. Design level considerations include handset capabilities, technology platforms, devices, memory, and graphics. As an expert, Diaspark understands the intricacies of all platforms and makes recommendations on UI, and devices. Diaspark’s technical consultants work closely with you to translate the concept into an actionable design. The first set of design having call flow, UI, server details, integration points etc. is documented and sent for your review.

All deliveries by Diaspark go through a series of standard and project specific testing. With our years of experience, we bring in-depth knowledge of devices, app-store submissions, and operator-specific guidelines. We conduct rigorous emulator, device and carrier-based testing. We have huge in-house device inventory. Our test cases focus on testing the application from all-inclusive perspective of functionality, performance, network readiness, compatibility, UI uniformity. We use industry-standard tools including Microsoft EPM for project management and JIRA for bug-tracking. We use "Device Management System" for managing technical specifications of all devices and their known issues, specific handling needs or operator requirements. We comprehend the challenges involved in testing an application before deploying it commercially. Diaspark can also provide QA staff for executing extensive pre-launch testing.
One of the biggest challenges faced by mobile industry is the need to port an application on multiple devices and platforms which requires a diverse skill set and high expertise. Our experience includes handset and cross platform porting. We research the target device from application's perspective, optimize the application to fit the properties of the new device, logically process the UI to fit various screen sizes and colors in one go, modify the source code and test on emulators and actual target devices.
